BLACK JOE Brand Vintage Grape Crate Label (LL151)


This fruit crate label was used by Ed Kurtz, Lodi, California.  Image of African American, used for Zinfandel wine grapes.  On wine grapes for red wine, the darker the better, a sign of maturity.  This label would have gone on a crate of juice grapes, grapes shipped back east and sold to home wine makers.  They generally shipped in 36 pound crates and people would buy a few crates for making wine. 

  • 4.00 x 13.00 inches in size.
  • Printed in the 1930s.
  • Mint condition.
An original fruitcrate label, not a copy, not a computer printed art print.  A vintage label intended to be pasted on a crate, but never used.  Old stock from a warehouse find.
